Uncle Ben’s killer to return in Spider-man 4? June 24th, 2009

At Wiz­ard World Philadel­phia, dur­ing a ques­tion and answer ses­sion that included Ted Raimi, Michael Papa­john (aka the car­jacker and Ben’s Killer) revealed that he shall be repris­ing his role for Spider-man 4. No details as to what that entails, if he told us he’d have to kill us.

Astute fans will know, in the first Spider-man movie, the car­jacker is chased into a ware­house where he trips and falls to his death. How then, does this char­ac­ter reap­pear in Spider-man 4?

Maybe he sur­vived and is now a vil­lain? Maybe there’s a flashback?

Kirsten Dunst onboard for Spider-man 4, New York villain June 6th, 2009

Todd Black has been speak­ing with New York Post’s blog­ger Reed Tucker about ‘The Tak­ing of Peck­ham 123′, but in doing so also slipped in a cou­ple of Spider-man 4 ques­tions to whet our appetites.

Black con­firmed that Kirsten Dunst shall be onboard for the fourth Spider-man movie, although rumors of a wed­ding between Mary Jane and Peter Parker were shrugged off. As for the vil­lain, Black denied the Mor­bius vam­pire rumors that Raimi has thrown at us. As for com­ments on a vil­lain, he/she shall be New York based, to quote:

We’re just com­ing up with who the villain’s going to be now. We’ll be shoot­ing in New York again. Trust me, peo­ple will appre­ci­ate who we pick, because it’ll be a big part of New York.

J.K. Simmons to return as J. Jonah Jameson January 21st, 2009

J.K Sim­mons is set to return as Daily Bugle pub­lisher J. Jonah Jame­son in Spider-man 4, he tells MTV.

“We’ve def­i­nitely brain­stormed ideas for Triple-J, but I have no desire to make Triple-J more of the focus of those movies,” he said. “The amount that I did in 1, 2 and 3, is just exactly right. Like be the wolf. Come in, blow in, do a week, blow out, be the comic relief, and hit the road. And let Tobey and every­body else do the heavy lifting.”
